Just what the title says. Chewy. Chocolatey. Yummy cookies that have a little touch of something healthy in them so the kids are getting something good for them. I make these around Halloween time when pumkins are a plenty. (Hence the name!)
- 3⁄4 cup margarine, softened
- 1 1⁄4 cups brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup pumpkin puree (I use fresh, but canned is also good)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon allspice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1⁄2 cup chopped walnuts (optional) or 1⁄2 cup pecans (optional)
- 1⁄2 cup raisins, I don't like raisins myself, so I don't put them in (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, cream together margarine, sugar, eggs, pumpkin and vanilla.
- In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, allspice and cloves. Add dry misture to wet ingredients and mix. Stir in chocolate chips, and nuts/raisins if using.
- Drop rounded teaspoons full onto a greased cookie sheet.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
